Billy Graham's Son Claims Gay Can't Make Family: VIDEO


Franklin Graham, the evangelical leader famous for being the son of Billy Graham, offered up some standard conservative fear-mongering about President Obama's second term and increased support for marriage equality during an interview with CBN's David Brody.

Basically he believes Obama's reelection proves the nation "turned our back on God" and same-sex nuptials are an assault on family because "[it] takes the family away and there is no way you can have a family with two females or two males, if you just think biologically how God made us our plumbing is completely different."

To correct our course, he says, "we need someone like a Jerry Falwell to come back and resurrect the Moral Majority movement." How very retro.

  1. The guy believes or says he believes that the thoroughly human and flawed collection of books called the "Holy Bible" was written/inspired by the creator of the billion gallaxies universe, so how smart can he be.

  3. That d-bag has made a fortune off his father's name, and now he's cashing in by putting his hand up his senile father's @$$ and playing him like a muppet.

  4. Billy Graham and his son Franklin - two more nutters who didn't fall far from the tree.

  5. This form of public religion is just a subset of the entertainment industry. Unfortunately for Franklin the target audience is shrinking.

    It was interesting to see the Grahams scurrying around before the election trying to curry favor. Now they will have to come up with a new marketing plan.

  6. Graham's arguments against marriage equality are rather puerile. His childish concept of marriage and family are rather 18th century. Slowly, more and more his followers will dwindle away from draconian, archaic views.

  7. If same-sex marriage is a threat to family, then why is divorce allowed? Why is porn legal? Why are parents not banned from drinking, gambling, and smoking?

    How will marriage between a couple of the same sex will threat the family of heterosexual? Will the heterosexual family have a nasty divorce or unhappy life because of that?

    An alcoholic father prone to drunken rage is a threat to a family life. A smoker mother might cause health problems to her children. A gambler might jeopardize his family's future.

    Someone else's marriage to the same sex is not.
